This visualization shows data from a global atmospheric assimilation model for August 2005. In early August the camera looks towards the North pole showing the swirling winds caused by the Coriolis effect; then the camera moves down towards Africa which is the birthplace of many tropical storms; finally, the camera moves across the Atlantic as many of the storms form during 2005 ending with Hurricane Katrina. This visualization was created in support of demonstrations given at the...

This is a three-hour global rainmap from January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2005, as compiled by the TRMM satellite's Multi-satellite Precipation Analysis. The TRMM Multi-satellite Precipitation Analysis produces three hourly rain rates at 0.250 latitude by 0.250 longitude grid covering 500S to 500N. The input data for this merged product include a merged intercalibrated microwave-only product (3B40RT) and an Infrared rain product that is calibrated using microwave rain rates (3B41RT)....

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In Highbay 1 inside the Vehicle Assembly Building, technicians look at hail damage on the external tank. A severe thunderstorm with golf ball-sized hail caused visible divots in the giant tank's foam insulation and minor surface damage to about 26 heat shield tiles on the shuttle's left wing. A new target launch date has not been determined, but teams will focus on preparing Atlantis for liftoff in late April on mission STS-117. Photo credit: NASA/Jim Grossman

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Inside Discovery's opened payload bay, a technician installs a wiring modification called the "Station to Shuttle Power Transfer System," or SSPTS. The SSPTS allows the space shuttle to stay docked at the International Space Station longer by providing its power and preserving its consumables. Other workers oversee the operation. Discovery is scheduled to fly on mission STS-122 to the International Space Station in the fall of 2007. Photo credit:...
